Millville, NJ – Trent Walko won the F2000 Championship Series season finale, taking the checkered flags at New Jersey Motorsports Park first on Sunday afternoon in round 14 of the 2018 season. Walko, driving the No. 91 Arms Up Motorsports entry, dominated the race after taking the lead early. He won ahead of Michael Eastwell, who finished second, and James Roe, who finished third.
Walko: “I just want to thank my Dad and Arms Up Motorsports for the opportunity. It’s always great to be back in one of these cars, even if it’s only for a race or two a year. Overall, it was a really good race. We got a good start and the car came in really quick. The inside row on the start got a bit of a jump off the start. I kept putting pressure on Michael for the first lap and the car was hooked up right off the bat.”
Eastwell: “It is a good way to kicking off our racing here in the U.S. It’s been a big learning curve for me. I’m pleased with his result; a little more work and hopefully we’ll be there for the win”
Roe: “I had a bad start and didn’t time it right. I fell back quite a bit; three of us started battling and Brandon got away. It didn’t work out today; we just had to bring it home. I think I had fastest lap which is a positive.”
